‘Game Of Thrones’ Legacy Figures Coming From Funko?
December 1, 2013

We already know that Funko has a Game of Thrones license as they have just announced their third series of GoT POP! figures.   We also know that they recently announced their new line of  premium 6″ articulated “Legacy” figures with at least 2 big name licenses that were to be announced in February at NYC Toy Fair.   Now comes the news… or at least the HINT of news from Funko president Brian that HBO’s Game of Thrones will be one of the licenses in that 6″ line.

Right before the Thanksgiving holiday our old pal Blanka asked the following question on the official Funko forums:

Can we get some hints as to what’s going to be happening with the Legacy line? I mean, those two major licenses can’t just wait until February! Build the anticipation now! :)

To which Brian responded:

Look, Winter is Coming..so maybe more hints then!

While that is not an official press release that’s a pretty solid “hint” from the man in charge.   You may also remember that Dark Horse Comics announced last year that they had the license to do action figures as part of their GoT license agreement.   So far all we have seen from Dark Horse are statues, busts and some minimally articulated figures on bases announced.

We will be keeping a close eye on their story and will send out a raven with more news when we get it.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
